Phantom Boy

Unclassified (all ages) Scroll to content

“…this story of a bedridden 11-year-old who discovers that he can float free of his body should easily delight, blending sentimental fantasy with radio-serial detective story elements to intriguing effect.”

Leo, an 11-year old boy from New York, has a mysterious illness which has transformed him into Phantom Boy: he can become invisible and fly through walls! While receiving treatment in hospital, he befriends Alex, a police officer temporarily confined to a wheelchair after being injured by a gangster who is threatening New York with a dangerous computer virus.

Together they form an unexpected crime fighting duo, with Leo in the air and Alex on the ground. They combine forces with Mary, a journalist who goes in search of the dangerous criminal but when Mary falls prey to this unidentified gangster, our duo have to use all their powers to find her, and save New York from destruction.

Daytime screenings will be with English dialogue featuring the voices of Fred Armisen (Portlandia), Vincent D'Onofrio, Jared Padalecki, Marcus D'Angelo, Melissa Disney and Dana Snyder. Evening screenings will be in French with English subtitles and feature the voices of Audrey Tautou (Amélie), Edouard Baer and Jean-Pierre Marielle. Exclusive to ACMI!
